Description

Look up! Look up! Prepare the way...The Messenger is coming! Oscar(R) winners Al Pacino ('Scent of a Woman'), Meryl Streep ('Kramer vs. Kramer') and Emma Thompson ('Howards End') lead an all-star cast in this two-part film directed by Mike Nichols ('The Graduate') and written by Tony Kushner, based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Set in a Reagan-era 1985 in which fantasy and reality interact and the AIDS epidemic is in full swing, the film follows a diverse group of real and imagined characters. Among them are Roy Cohn (Al Pacino), a fictionalized version of the closeted conservative; Hannah Pitt (Meryl Streep); Joe Pitt, Hannah's closeted Mormon son (Patrick Wilson); Joe's hallucinatory wife Harper (Mary-Louise Parker); Prior Walter (Justin Kirk), a gay man with AIDS; Prior's lover Louis (Ben Shenkman); Belize (Jeffrey Wright), a nurse who tends to Cohn and is a friend to Prior; a 'messenger' Angel (Emma Thompson); and an assortment of others.

Customer Reviews

Bittersweet and immensely rich

This depicts an era with such acuity, wit, vibrancy, and finesse, it's easy to feel entirely immersed with the lives we are witnessing from rthe moment we are invites to watch. The horror of 80s AIDS, the brutality of the emotional synficiance of gay sex becoming terminal and catastraophic. What a bizarre and agonizing time period not talked about these days, not enough anyway. The splitting, the polarities, of Republidans and Democrats, Christians, Jews, Mormons, Gays and heterosexuals, it all plays out in this beautiful series with insight, groth, and the best acting possible. A beautiful story.

One of the best

One of the most unique and beautiful mini-series ever on television. Real, dramatic, touching, funny, and sad, directed by Mike Nichols and an amazing cast. Thought-provoking very superbly done.

Soaring Music and Story

This one has it all, the story, the music, the cast! I've watched this dozens of times and it is always moving and affecting. So many great performances, and a triumphant musical score by Thomas Newman make Tony Kushner's story take wing, and it SOARS!
